That might not be amazing to some of you, but for me it's a great accomplishment.
We biked and hiked, sat by the lake, shopped, toured, went to an amusement park, ate some very good ice cream, plus a few other things. So as you can see I didn't have a lot of down time to read. I fit in little bits of time when the kids were busy biking with their dad, or playing at the park.
The book started off slow, but by the second to last day of our vacation I was enthralled and couldn't put it down. I was okay to wait for the boys while they hit a few balls at the driving range, or biked on the BMX course. My kids would tease me when I didn't hear their questions. "Mom's in book mode."
Finally it came to a head when I was reading my book when I suppose to be telling my husband where to turn. He announces to the kids, "A monster has taken over your mother and I will call him Booklore."
So I put the book away and finished it the next morning while everyone slept.
It's good to be back even though that means going back to work. I'm looking forward to getting back to some much neglected writing, plus catching up on your blogs. Let me know if anything exciting happened while I was gone.
